Midnight snack, my heart attack

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Cockroach crunching through the kitchen,

bare feet squelching skin now itching.

Putrid smell from fridge not working,

slippery guts and flesh a rotting.

Light globe blown and moonlight dusting,

horrid gore and shadows belching,

Ants and flies are swarming, crawling,

maggots feed in creamy puslings.

Groaning heads from bodies gone,

removed with blades in blood so wrong,

while ghoulish faces of darkness rear,

to join the throng and engender fear.

Each step a passage of uncertain course,

my hunger wanes my stomach raw.

This gloom and sickly stench relates,

to body parts and damaged states,

vomitous slime and crunch surround,

my body heaving illness bound.

My midnight snack a memory lost,

I’m wanting sleep at any cost.

Please take me from this kitchen cursed,

I’d prefer the satin of a shiny hearse.

I swear I’ll never dream again,

no midnight snacks to curb this sin.
